(Note: We are lucky here at the Wolf to get the jump on hearing new artists, and having them come visit the radio station before they hit the "mainstream". When I hear someone I think is "on their way", I'll let you guys know! I love to discover new artists, and if you do too, then you'll enjoy this feature! And if you know of a new artist that you think deserves attention, please let me know!)
I first heard of Jason Sturgeon thru friends from "back home" in Indiana on Facebook. When I heard there was a talented Country singer from the "next town over", I had to check him out! Jason grew up in Petersburg, IN, population 35oo, and just 13 miles down the road from where I grew up. There's not much in that part of Indiana except cornfields and cows, and weekends are spent with good friends, family, and good music. That's how Jason started singing...entertaining his family for quarters!
When Jason decided to immerse himself in a music career, he hooked up with Dane Clark (a member of the band of another famous Indiana boy, John Mellencamp). Jason learned from Dane & his fellow musicians' insight and experience, and the resulting album is called, That's Me. You can definitely hear the Mellencamp influence on my favorite track, "Simple Life"!
Jason played last month at Johnny & June's, and stopped by the Wolf for an interview with me. Check it out here http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=1939032321532 and listen for an acoustic performance of his latest single, "The Cover" at the end!
